Good transportation system as well as support programs for the elderly and disabled


Once I understood what I was recommending and if I had a strong belief in it, my answer would be Definitely!


Great for Retirement


There are commodities, like trash pick up at your door, that are needed for the older community. The pool is small and not very populated. The jacuzzi feels great on a hard day. There's an internal case wash. I know how important a clean car is. Publix is within walking distance. So is Whole Foods. Many restaurants, pharmacies, gyms , banks, nail salons & a USPS . Nothing is further than a walk away or a .02 drive away. There are carports to keep the sun off their cars and maintenance is prompt. The pool has a covered pavilion with a huge picnic table that accommodates 25 people. It also has a BBQ for public use. Gatherings there for games would be perfect!


i did many for 12 years until i have my on baby , since then i have been a full time mom and house wife but now my girls is 11 and i feel needs to go back to work. l always had the desire to work with elders.
